Deadline: April 30, 2014

CI team leaders are invited to nominate current CI undergraduate students to become CI Adobe Scholars.

During the summer of 2014, this select, small group of CI students will:

Each CI Adobe Scholar will receive a stipend of $1000 for a time commitment of approximately 16 hours per week (9 in workshops, 7 to complete projects). Students may combine this work with a CI Summer Stipend (up to a maximum workweek of 28 hours) with the approval of their CI team leaders.

ACCIAC Fellowships in Creativity and Innovation
Deadline: March 28, 2014

This fellowship program supports undergraduate student-driven research projects at the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) campuses. Fellows are sponsored by the Clemson University Office of Undergraduate Studies and the Atlantic Coast Conference Inter-institutional Academic Collaborative (ACCIAC). Each Fellow receives an award of up to $4,000 to conduct innovative research. The project must be substantially the idea of the student, though it may derive from previous work with a mentor. Examples of project outcomes might include publication, artistic work, presentation or a proof-of-concept proposal. Fellows receive additional funding to present their project results at the 2014 ACC Undergraduate Research Conference. Application forms for this fellowship are available in early February each year. The Fellowship research period is March through August.
